Thoughts and Prayers Needed

We ask for everyone's thoughts and prayers for former Missouri Holstein Member Kim (Wilson) Grewe, her husband Brandon and most of all their daughter Brynn. Brynn is the beloved granddaughter of longtime members Mike and Tina Wilson. She is also the niece of Scott and Jenna Wilson, and Shannon and Jared Kleiboeker.

On June 28th, Brynn Charlie Grewe was taken to the hospital and has remained there since. This 1 1/2 year old was fighting a nasty bacteria and it had taken over her body. They are happy to share that there have been many blessings and miracles through the hands of the medical staff to help her in healing, but she will have a long and hard road ahead of her. All the effects the infection had on her body will not be known for sometime. For Brynn's full story and updates on her current condition, you may follow her website at: https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/brynngrewe

Watch Out for SPAM Email

MO Holstein Members,
Apparently there is SPAM email that is going around stating that it is from President, Ryan Bilyeu or Junior President, Blake Wright. Missouri Holstein does NOT sent emails requesting money, gift cards, or anything that would not pertain to our operations and activities. Any request would also be posted on our website. So if you are wondering be sure to check out our website first. We do not seek any donations that are not relevant to Missouri Holstein activities. I have no control over spam emails and I am not able to stop them.

Please just be aware and delete them if received. DO NOT download, reply, call or engage the email in any way. If you ever have any questions regarding the validity of any information please reach out before taking any action.
